Download Winemaker Note


Crisio (from the Greek language “Crysos” = “Gold”) was born with vintage 2010, the same year when the DOCG appellation was created for the Verdicchio. 


Instead of upraising one of our existing Verdicchio to the “Riserva DOCG” level, we decided instead to push further our  experimentation and create a brand new wine. Our idea was to play with the idea that the  Verdicchio is often considered to be the Chablis of Italy, but in order to get closer to a Burgundy style, we needed to work to control the power, and especially the alcohol level, which often characterize many Verdicchio Riserva. Thus we came to the idea of the three harvest times and the complex winemaking described below in the winemaking section, which is meant to preserve freshness, control the alcohol level, increase elegance and focus on the natural minerality of the Verdicchio.


Verdicchio is one of the noble grapes of Italy, often called “the Chablis of Italy” (cit. Jansis Robinson) due to its minerality, complexity and great ageing potential, in some cases up to 25 years.
